Unified Threat ManagementNetwork and security technologies continue to evolve along with the fast pace of today’s business and are becoming the norm for most small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The necessary introduction of these technologies over time has made their environments increasingly complex and difficult to manage. Specifically, the rise of mobile and remote workers, as well as an explosion of connected devices, has spurred the need for virtual private networking, wireless access points, wired routing/switching and more.

At the same time, the use of cloud-based services and simple growth of the business to expand with multiple locations has driven the need for WAN connectivity/optimisation, along with 4G connectivity, for business continuity.

With this innovation and increased complexity comes an increased opportunity for cyber criminals whose attacks have become more sophisticated.

At the same time, having most if not all staff connected to the internet, brings it’s own challenges of managing access to good or appropriate websites and traffic, whilst blocking malicious or inappropriate websites and traffic.
